(KSDK Sports) --An East St. Louis native has been working for more than 20 years to help bring baseball back to the inner city. Ted Savage played for the Cardinals and was their director of marketing till he retired last year.

But even in retirement at the age of 77, Savage is still trying to make a difference in the lives of children in the inner cities, by keeping their exposure to the game of baseball alive.
